Produced by Defibrillator and Seven Dials Playhouse


Foxes explores masculinity and homosexuality within London’s Caribbean Community and black street culture.
Daniel is a young black man trying to keep up with his life, which is moving fast. When his relationship with best friend Leon explodes, it knocks things from their axis, introducing a taboo into his family home that has the power to tear the closest and most loving relationships apart.
